I hadn't noticed the Cheops array before, but the appeal to me was that array with an empty rank behind it, since I rather like the effect of centering a Falcon behind a Bishop's starting position. Decimal Falcon Chess could be looked at as a specific version of Cheops Falcon Chess, as it specifies the board and a particular use of the board and some mildly variant promotion rules and a variety of castling rules. (I suspect castling isn't necessary there.)
